Forum: classic_tv Subject: Two more Checkmate Episodes in PD?

Adamelijah stated in his comment on the "Checkmate" episode review page that is on this website that there are infact two more episodes of "Checkmate" in the Public Domain. Does anybody else have these? and How can you tell what is in the Public Domain? Is there a specific website to tell? I'd appreciate one :-)

Thanks, Jeff

There are 2 other PD episodes from Season 2.

One of them is "Nice Guys Finish Last" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0539631/) which is nothing like the episode, "The Human Touch." In it, the Checkmate Team our relegated to side character status as their entire episode focuses on the downfall of a tough cop who becomes a crooked cop in his private pursuit of justice.

The other is episode 22 of Season 2, The Heart is a Handout (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0539619/) which I haven't seen.

I should also mention that the whole series is now available on DVD on Amazon in an authorized release.

This works for most television shows as any renewals after 1950 are here:

Sometimes, it requires some tweaking (like searching by episode title when the actual show won't show up in the title search.)
